The Audi Museum in Ingolstadt is a must-see for any automotive history buffs visiting southern Germany

1963 Auto Union 1000 Sp roadster at Audi Ingolstadt museum

Heavily inspired by the 1955-57 Ford Thunderbird two-seat roadster, DKW introduced this two-seater initially as a coupe only for the 1958-61 model years, joined by a convertible version from 1962-65. To give the car a more upscale image than DKW was known for, it was simply badged the Auto Union 1000Sp in later years. All were powered by two stroke, four-cylinder engines driving the front wheels.  (Photo credit: S. Connor )
